2022 Yamaha FZS 25 New Colour First Look
Launched under the company’s ‘The Call of the Blue’, strategy, the Yamaha FZ 250cc motorcycles have been on sale in India for a few years now. But unlike the 150cc FZ range, the 250cc range is yet to see similar sales success.
With new colour schemes added, Yamaha will be hoping that it will gain more attention from buyers in a younger and more adventurous segment. Below is a detailed walkaround review and first look of the new 2022 Yamaha FZS 25 motorcycle, credit to Nitish Neo youtube channel.
